Event – Himley Hall 2016

I’d never attended the Himley Hall show before despite it being one of the oldest on the MINI show caledar. But the British Mini Club was inviting owners of MINIs built between 2001-2006 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of that model of MINI. Despite the distance, I wasn’t going to miss a chance to display…

Event: Stanford Hall 2015

The show at Stanford Hall isn’t the biggest Mini show in the world. Plus, its often crammed inbetween other shows meaning this is my first chance to attend despite a decade on the Mini scene. Welcomed onto the Robin Hood Mini Club stand, we managed to grab some great shots of some lovely Minis. Check…

The event sees Mini clubs from across the UK (and even as far away as Belgium) head up to the Santa Pod Raceway near Northampton. Europe’s only US-style…

Event: Harwoods Run 2015

This weekend was the very first run organised by Harwoods MINI in Basingstoke. They took us from their workshop down to Lasham airfield for a fantastic photoshoot. Then we had a spirited drive back through the countryside. When we arrived back at the workshop they’d laid on two MINI Challenge cars, free vehicle health checks…

Event: Minis on the Rec 2015

Unseasonal weather put a bit of a damper on Minis by the Seas this year. Brighton Mini Club are usually blessed with bright summer sunshine for their annual show at the Adur Recreation Ground but this year lashing rain and howling winds meant they lost many attendees early and nearly lost their tannoy speakers as…
